Bond Construction

In 2019, residents elected to pass a $22.5 million dollar bond for facility improvements and additions.  Bonds will be sold in phases to support the different phases of construction and enhancements.  Below you will find progress photos of the projects.  In some cases, where construction has not begun, architecture drawings of the completed project will be displayed.  We are excited to grow and enhance our facilities for our students and community. 

Rio Rico Cafeteria Expansion


The current cafeteria will be expanded and updated.  Currently, the cafetorium is a dual space for the theatre and cafeteria.  With expansion, the theatre will be relocated. The stage will be transformed into seating. 

Construction begins January 2021

RRHS Media Center

The current media center is the future home of the RRHS Theatre Complex.  The media will be constructed next to the cafeteria where the basketball courts are currently.  The media center will be the new home of the RRHS Bookstore, classrooms, and other meeting and conference style rooms.

RRHS Theatre

The RRHS Theatre complex will bring all the elements of theatre to one space.  The theatre currently shares space in the cafeteria.  The new complex will have a ticket booth, hallway entrance, stadium seating, and classrooms for stage crafts, sewing, and more to accomodate the growing department.
